5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Resurrects Again in 21st C October 6, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is a classic, not to mention the hugely popular "Call Me" from Blondie(the 8 minutes+ version!). You can feel the indulgence and decadence throughout the album that echoes the theme of the movie. Very atmospheric, seductive and addictive. I remember that I could listen to this album 5 to 6 times a day.
With the remastered recording, the sound is much superb and I have already given the old CD to my friend within a second after I have listened to this re-issued CD.

THIS IS A MASTER PIECE OF INSTRUMENTAL SOUNDS COMBINED WITH GREAT DISCO VOICES (BLONDIE) AND GIVES THE MOVIE A SPECIAL EFECT ON THE SCENES TO CREATE TENSION TO THE PUBLIC . EXCELLENT MUSIC BY GIORGIO MORODER .WHEN YOU LISTEN THE ALBUM YOU RECREATE THE DRAMA .

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheesy film but great soundtrack February 9, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Richard Gere's coming out party featured a nude scene in this 1980 movie that was pretty cheesy but featured a fabulous soundtrack. Producer-composer Giorgio Moroder put together great topical sounds -- like Blondie's "Call Me" -- with his ripoffs of Mozart's Clarinet Concerto slow movement and other composers to create an aura of eroticism and mystery suitable to the moments portrayed in this flick.

It seems inconprehensible to me there is only one review of this wonderful soundtrack on Amazon. People that like film music should at least listen to the sound bytes and, more likely, invest the tiny amount asked for Moroder's production. The music gave the movie a film noir element that increases its credibility. Dont' hestiate if you like music from the movies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some Electropop Standouts of the Period November 1, 2005
Format:Audio CD
"Love Theme" and "Seduction" rate as probably two of the best pop-electronic film themes of the 80s, and, well, "Call Me" is just downright great. Why Giorgio bothered to squeal his way through "Hello W.A.M.", I don't know. It hurt the end of the film, itself, and adds nothing to this soundtrack. "Love and Passion" - lyrics by director Paul Shrader - totally sum up the feelings of any intelligent person who has tried to live too long in Los Angeles.

This dates very well because L.A. is STILL the L.A. of this film (1980) - fun, dangerous, superficial, materialistic - so take it along on your next trip and drive along the lonesome freeways with Moroder's hypnotic electrobeat propelling you along.

5.0 out of 5 stars Giorgio hits it again May 10, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Indeed a great sountrack for a not so good movie. Ignore the movie and listen to this awesome music score by Giorgio. Im into prog rock but I have this as one of my great none prog albums. Try The Beach and Queen of the Damned soundtracks. These movies and the score are inseperable as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic that influences the music of today... June 20, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I grew up listening to this soundtrack as my parents played it quite a bit. It's amazing how music you just "heard" as a child can touch you in a completely differnt way 20 years later when you actually LISTEN to it. It's easy to see how the work of Giorgio Moroder was a heavy influence on Madonna's 2006 "COnfessions on a Dance Floor" album. Listening to the two albums back to back, you can distincly hear Moroder's influences in Madonna's work. Confessions on a Dance Floor

3.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Blonde February 1, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Brings back memories of the Blond's prime with "Call Me", a longer version, and some great instrumental cuts. Very hard to find so it was great to get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars cd review
The cd was good. I enjoyed getting to listen to the whole track of the songs from the movie, not just bits and pieces of it to fill in the background of a particular scene.

This is a great music cd. I loved it the first time I heard this music, several years ago, and it still gets 5 stars! Thanks for the fast delivery, too.
